Happy New Year 2011


I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years eve and is already enjoying a satisfying 2011. I did and am. Jake and I had a few offers for activities to celebrate New Years but in the end decided to spend our first New Years together ever, alone together. We had a gift card for our favorite sushi restaurant so we headed there first for a delicious sushi feast. Wow, it was probably one of the best sushi dinners we'd ever had. We chose five different rolls, each a little different. There was a bit of a wait for the food as the place was pretty crowded, so when our food arrived we definitely gobbled them down. Yum!

After dinner we headed over to Jake's grandparents just to say hello and happy New Year to them. They were celebrating with their best friends Anne and Joe and the four of them had finished supper and were toasting early, getting ready to play cards. It was certainly a merry crowd and as we were leaving they offered us a bottle of champagne they had extra. We were happy to accept.

Next we went to Wal Mart for a little and then headed to the Regal 14 to watch True Grit. It was TERRIFIC. We both loved the movie and halfway through we looked at each other and started whispering about how much we loved it, wanted to own it, couldn't wait to tell everyone to see it. I've never seen the John Wayne original version but I must say I adored this version and think the old one has a lot to live up to if its really better. When it finished I could have watched the whole thing over from the beginning again right then. About halfway through the movie the clock struck twelve and Jake and I shared a kiss in the dark theater.

After the movie we headed home and set up a new Digital antenna we purchased at Wal Mart so we can watch TV without paying for Cable. We also made some chocolate champagne fondue and enjoyed it with strawberries, marshmallows and champagne. Yum!

This morning we are enjoying some Cranberry-Pomegranate juice with champagne and in a bit we are headed out to grab some bagels and tour a couple of gyms.

My goals for 2011 are to exercise much much more and hopefully lose some weight. Take more photos. Smile more. I have so much to be thankful for and can't wait to see what the new year will bring. How about you guys? Any resolutions or goals?
